(RepublicanInformer.com)- Social media giant Facebook just revealed that it plans to restart its political donations…but that it won’t be making any campaign contributions to legislators who took the brave step of speaking out against election fraud.
Following the January 6 riots in Washington, D.C., which were attended by both left-wing and right-wing activists, Facebook announced a pause on all campaign donations through its dedicated political action committee. But on Thursday last week, Facebook told Politico that the pause had ended.
Some Republican members of Congress not only spoke out about election fraud but even objected to the electoral college count, citing evidence of votes not being properly counted, tens of thousands of votes being cast with fake addresses, and flaws in the mass mail-in voting system. Some of those Republicans included Missouri Senator Josh Hawley, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, and Alabama Senator Tommy Tuberville.
There were plenty more who did the same, specifically objecting to the certification of results in Pennsylvania and Arizona, and all of them should not expect any future donations from Facebook…not that they would ever receive them anyway.
Facebook’s Public Policy Director Brian Rice said that their board decided to resume contributions but “not to any members of Congress who voted against certifying the 2020 election.” Rice cited the events of the January 6 riot as a reason why voting against the certification of the electoral college was wrong, but failed to acknowledge that the riot was entirely separate from the very real issue of election fraud.
Members of Congress voted against certifying the Electoral College vote because of the evidence of fraud, and not to incite a riot.
Democrats will no doubt be pleased to start raking in money from their friends on social media once again.
